Beach Wedding Bridesmaid Ideas

You’ve seen the evolution of bridesmaids dresses. From ’50s lindy to ’70s mod polyester to ’80s shiny satin with matching colored shoes. Yep, that happened. But no matter the trend or the style, every beach bride should have the same goal: happy, beautiful bridesmaids by her side. So these tips will guide you as you search for the perfect beach wedding bridesmaid dresses for your wedding party.

One size fits all? Not!

This is often the biggest challenge. Short, tall, skinny, curvy, apple shaped, pear shaped. How can you find a dress to suit them all? A line dresses are one of the most universally flattering dress types and perfect in length for a beach wedding. High-low hemlines are also compliment most body types. The high-low also will keep your bridesmaids cool with a flirty, fun flare. If you only have 1 or 2 bridesmaids, get their input on what they feel comfortable in too!

Fabrics

Breathable, flowy fabrics are the best option. Most of the time sleeves will be too hot. Halters, spaghetti straps, and off the shoulder will be breezy and cool when paired with the best fabric for an ocean ceremony. Read more about bridal tips and fabric options here.

Length

Short/A length dresses are your best bet. Long dresses can work too, but be sure it’s a tulle/chiffon-like fabric to avoid getting stuck in the sand. And consider sandals or bare feet when making any alterations. We love the bridesmaids featured in the photo below who have chosen the necklines and sleeves they prefer on each dress. Yet, the whole bridal party has a cohesive look that complements the bride and maybe even her wedding package decor…just the way it should be! The bride pictured just below chose the Coral Distinctive Design package for her ceremony. We also see pictured Sea Green which our Jacksonville Bride chose.

Colors

Brides, there is so much choice regarding color this coming year. As you can see by our own Florida Beach Wedding photos, coral and fuchsia continue to be popular and are oh so pretty with beach blues. However, Teal combined with other colors continue to gain in popular: hence our Teal Distinctive Design all-inclusive wedding package. Check out The Knot’s vision for some beautiful beach wedding color combos.

Price Point

Consider your crowd here. If your girlfriends are taking time off work to help prepare for your wedding and possible travel, keep the financial burden at a minimum. You can often get inspiration from top name brands and find an equally stylish look for less under from another more affordable company.

Accessories

 So shoes are easy. Barefoot or cute barefoot sandals are both practical footwear choices. No need for sandals that will flip sand everywhere or become buried treasure. Fun and beach-y hair pins or other jewelry could double as a sweet bridal party gift. And why not a playful beachball for the wedding photography session?
